Next Sunday: Scripture: Luke 24:44-53; Message: “This Is Not The Messiah You’re Looking For.”  There’s a line in the original Star Wars movie where Obi-Wan Kenobi waves his fingers and tells the Stormtroopers, “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”  But they are the droids they’re looking for!  They’re looking right at them and don’t see them.  When Jesus is speaking to two disciples on the Road to Emmaus who are looking right at him and don’t recognize him, he reminds them how it is written “that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day.”  That’s not the Messiah they were looking for.  Jesus is saying the same thing to us, “This is not the Messiah you were looking for.”  Not if we 21st century Christians are expecting Jesus to confirm our worship of false gods.  Which is a good thing.  Jesus has a better idea.
